Creating Volumes

I have installed 6.5 sp8 and now I need to setup volumes. I have a partition of 25.9 gig. I want to setup 2 volumes of equal size. I cannot access the remote user interface. when I type in the ip address of the server I gett a page cannot be displayed. How can I gain access to my server to setup the traditional volumes

Try https://foo:8009 and see if NORM is alive and well.

If you only have access to the console, NSSMU is the tool to use.

You can enable SSH, RCONSOLE, ... using INETCFG.

Re: Creating Volumes

I tried your suggestions and was unsuccessful. I was wondering that since I have Netware 6 that if I installed it and setup my volumes there if I could then upgrade to 6.5 and if my dettings would stay the same?

Re: Creating Volumes

Is this a new server? On the server, is portal loading, you will need that for NRM to work. As well as HTTPS. Why are you wanting to create traditinal volumes? If I were you, I would go nss.

Re: Creating Volumes

Why use nss volumes are they better. If I add another drive how will that work?

Re: Creating Volumes

They are much better. They have updated code, traditional code has not been worked on for years. NSS volumes have less problems and they are easier to fix if there is a problem.

Yes, by adding in another drive, you will be able to use nssmu to set it up as an nss volume.
There are serveral different utilities that can be used to migrate the data from the traditional volume to the nss volume.

Because you need unpartitioned space to set up NSS.
